A hospital Consultant who arranged for his injured wife to jump the queue at a busy casualty department was suspended for misconduct.

Dr Brian Flavin’s wife Oriel, 49, was seen, X-rayed and discharged in just 26 minutes.

Dr Brian Flavin was suspended for misconduct after arranging for his wife to jump the queue at a busy A&E in Dorset

Dr Flavin, 48, also took medical supplies from Christchurch Hospital in Dorset to treat his wife, also a doctor, at home and falsified medical records to cover his tracks.

An internal investigation was launched by NHS bosses after they received a tip-off from a member of staff.

Dr Flavin told a Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service disciplinary panel he was working on a busy night in an understaffed A&E in July 2016.

He said he was worried that his son, who had arrived with his wife, would become disruptive if he had been left for too long.

The disciplinary panel said his “dishonesty, which was repeated during the relevant period and included the falsifying of records, was significant”.

He was suspended for a month.

Dr Flavin left the hospital in August 2017 and returned to his native Ireland to work in a clinic.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
